I reside on the mainland axis of Lagos and one of my greatest fantasies is to be able to party (serious groove) with my father and be sure that we will both have a great time. Let the legend King Sunny Ade, come on stage and drop the good oldies, my father will dance and forget he is that old. Pasuma will arouse a certain feeling when he drops his fuji/hip-hop wonder and pass the mic to Marvellous Benji, who will usher us to a street groove and I still get to drop some of that #suo steps (I believe it is still somewhere within) that makes it easy to forget the #shakiti-bobo, #dab, #alanta, #alingo, #azonto and the likes. I will really love to see how the old man partied in those days.
Did I just talk about forgetting some steps? That’s UNpossible. Kcee, Phyno, Olamide, Lil Kesh , Timaya, Wande Coal, Patoranking , Ycee (Proud Festac Boy) , Omawumi, Tekno, Harrysong, Iyanya, D’banj, Oritse Femi, and more, will also be there. So how on earth will that even happen. In Lagos where most of the “cool” grooves happen on the Island, I cannot come and miss this one o! It is all happening at Golden Tulip Hotel, Festac Town, on the 18th of March 2016. Organised by Five Star Music in conjunction with UPDC (executive owners of Golden Tulip Hotels), Music Festival Lagos 2016, promises to be arguably the biggest event so far this year (even after three editions in the past).
With over 27 artists performing live, it will not be about the musicians only. The masters in the art of laughter: AY, Akpororo Patrick, Ushbebe, Funny bone, Pencil etc., will be there to crack your ribs all night long. Also new and upcoming acts will be given a chance to perform after auditioning.
Tickets can be purchased at Golden Tulip Hotel, Festival Mall Festac Town and Silverbird Cinemas Festac. The ticket categories: Regular
N 2,000, VIP N 15,000 and Table of 10 N 400,000. In what appears to be a perfect blend of the old and new school, Music Festival Lagos 2016 will offer a wide array of scintillating performance from the industry’s top performers.
N.B.: Do not tell my father about it. I still prefer to do this with friends.
